Griffith Review novella competition

The Griffith Review‘s eighth novella competition is now open for entries from Australian and New Zealand writers.

The competition is part of the Novella Project publication series, and in this round the editors seek work on the theme of “generosities of spirit”, that is, work that celebrates kindness.

Entries can be fiction or creative non-fiction, and should be around 15,000 and 25,000 words long.

The winning novellas will be professionally edited and published, and the winners will share in a $25,000 prize pool.

Find out more about the competition.

Deadline: 31 March 2020

Text Prize

The annual Text Prize is accepting entries of young adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction writing.

Open to Australian and New Zealand writers, first prize is a publishing contract with Text and a $10,000 advance against royalties!

Last year’s winner, Georgina Young, says of winning the prize for her YA novel Loner:

“While continuing to disbelieve in fate and fortune, I count my ordinary, unlucky stars to have heard word of the Text Prize at exactly the moment I had on hand a manuscript to submit.”

Polish those manuscripts, then find out more about the Text Prize or download the entry form.

Deadline: 7 February 2020
